With endless machinery and accompanying parts to go with them, it can be hard to differentiate what you should buy, and what you could buy; what’s necessary and what isn’t. Here at Stephens Gaskets, with over fifty years in the industry, our staff and their expansive knowledge on machinery components, will ensure you are investing in the perfect products to meet your requirements.
What is a Steel Shim?
Here at Stephens Gaskets, amongst many other excellent value products on offer, we specialise in top quality stainless steel shims. A shim is a thin piece of metal, which can be fitted between two components to reduce the gap and fit the alignment tighter in a form of machinery. When there is a gap between two components, there can be unnecessary moving that can lead to wear and tear, potentially reducing the lifespan of the machinery. Fitting a shim will stop or reduce the movement, and therefore decrease the damage over time on the machine.
